Spent a total of 22 days in Bali in September. Of all the places my friend and I stayed this was our favorite and provided ultimate relaxation. We were upgraded to a villa, which was so kind. The villa was extremely clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We really appreciated the large container of purified water instead of the small water... More

By far the best place to stay in Bali. Having travelled around Bali many times I will always return to Mandela Desa. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious but still have the full Balinese style and atmosphere that you would want to experience being in Bali. This trip we were there with family and partners and we pretty much had... More

A wonderful place to stay with friends, family or with loved ones. Beautiful villas and a lovely staff. Shuttle service to Ubud, Motorbikes available for rent and bicycles for free! Sukawati is a 5 min bike ride away and perfect for art shopping!

I stayed at Mandala Desa for several days during my last trip to Bali. The location is perfect; quiet and rural with great views but close to Ubud and other attractions. Jacinta, the owner, and all her staff were wonderful and hospitable. The rooms are excellently set up and the food was lovely. It is by far the best place... More

For the 3rd time in 5 years, we have come back to Mandala desa to start our vacation in Bali in the most relaxed way possible. Located in a rural area with view on the rice fields, the best way for us to start a relaxing holiday is to float around in the pool overlooking the fields, and chill in... More

We spent a blissful 5 days here in mid August. Jacintha & ALL of her staff were SO friendly & helpful, also organizing local activities for us. Both the suite & villa were luxurious & pristine. The food delicious. The pool perfect for cooling down. Only 10mins from Ubud (by complimentary return-shuttle, at any time up till 9pm), meant that... More

We stayed 2 nights at villa. Sitting in large terrace, facing commodious rice field, having local sweets as afternoon tea.... The atmosphere was so relaxed and the staff was very nice. Like other TA comments, the owner Jatincta was very helpful, we thanks their warm hospitality. The food in restaurant is very nice with natural, good quality ingredients. Cycling around... More

I booked Mandala Desa after stumbling upon it on TA and after looking at the website booked my stay because it just felt right!!! And I was not wrong!!! Email communication with Jacinta prior to travelling to Bali for the first time was spot on. No question was too much trouble to answer. I was picked up from the airport... More

Just leaving today after a wonderful few days here- a lovely, peaceful location with charming helpful staff. Should not be put off by the distance from Ubud- they arrange flexible transportation to there and indeed all over Bali.

Mandala Desa is set on the edge of a village with views over rice fields and jungle. It is peaceful, in a rural way (chickens, roosters, dogs). Jacintha runs a wonderful and personal service, the staff are friendly and helpful, the meals and drinks are delicious and reasonably priced. It is a way out of Ubud, but there is a... More
